Good service

Between Internation Market Place and Duke Market place, next to Waikiki Trade Center. Close to everything, bus (stop at WTC or front of hotel)/shopping/walking/restaurant/tour pickup, block away to DFS Gallerie center with other luxuries brand (Louis Vuitton, MK, Coach). Two block from beach. Little noisy on the weekend at night until 4am, weekday is very quiet. Free Wifi in the hotel/room. Staff is very nice and helpful. There is chinese seafood restaurant inside the hotel. Computers are available with fee.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you spend more than 3 days then you should bought Go Oahu Card (google to find the best price, some site will sell 15-20% cheaper) and plan your day with those attraction. Here is how I spend my 3 days: Day 1: - Grand Circle island tour (from 7am-5pm, my kids doesn't like it, and ) - rent the moped (motocycle) free for 4 hours Day 2: - Pearl Harbor & Honolulu tour ('til noon) - Polynesian Culture Center (took bus #2 or #13 or #8 to ala moana shopping center, then transfer to bus #55 - about 2hrs on the bus), if you want buffett and show then you need to call in to get it reservation, (cost: english buffett is $20, Ali Luau $40) Day 3: - Makani Catamaran Sail in the morning - Go get the Waikiki Trolley pass (work for next day) - Stand Up Paddle Boarding (afternoon) - Germaine's Luau (Free as bonus) Day 4: - use Waikiki Trolley to go around the town to: shopping center, walmart, samsclub, diamond head hiking ($1 entrance), chinatown. Dining: Walk about 2 miles or took bus, away from waikiki, everything is cheaper than Waikiki. Otherwise you can choose any other buffet around area for about $20.

Cheap place

Hotel was a good deal for Waikiki. Down in the middle of, walking distance to everything on the strip. Traffic there is a nightmare. There is no place to pull up to and unload your bags, the parking is under the hotel and first come only. My husband had to drag our bags up a bunch of steps to even make it to the lobby. The hotel is also sandwiched by 2 parking garages so it was loud at night with cars. Especially with the hotel having thin walls. Hotel was older but clean. Staff helpful enough. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay on the strip this'll do.

Good location for the value

Pros: -Location - 2 blocks away from Waikiki Beach (7-10 min walk). - right next to International Market. - right next to an ABC store (basically a 7-11). - literally across the street from a popular & inexpensive Udon noodle restaurant. -Clean rooms for its value. -Complimentary beach towels at front desk. -Complimentary wifi in each room. -Microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee maker in room. *FYI, clear AT&T signal all over Waikiki. Cons: -Gets noisy at night, especially weekends due to the multiple bars and clubs next door (including Zanzabar). -Slow elevators due to having only 2 elevators service 15 floors. (Recommend taking stairs at times) -Cheap non-pillow top, very springy beds. (Not good for side sleepers.) -House Keeping slow to service rooms. -Bath amenities were not completely replenished at times. -Bath towels were sometimes replaced with stained towels. -Must climb somewhat annoying steep steps to enter hotel.

Great value for a lower-priced hotel

Great location in Waikiki near all the shops and restaurants and beach. Great option if on a budget. Spacious, clean rooms with everything you need to enjoy your stay.

Happy with my short stay

I was in Honolulu for a one day layover and wanted to spend a little time on the beach. From start to finish this was a positive experience. Staff was friendly and provided resources quickly and efficiently, including arranging for an airport shuttle/taxi. I had worried a bit about the noise based on other reviews, but that was not a problem at all. My room had a great view, too!

Waikiki

Don't stay on the fourth floor - our room was infested with a colony of neverending cockroaches. But they gladly moved us to the eleventh floor - where there were no cockroaches. Very friendly staff - free wifi - parking was convenient.

Great staff, less then average place

Unfortunately the first room they provided for us was an absolute mess. The slide glass doors were full of finger prints as if they had not been cleaned in weeks. The brown, swede bed skirt on the first bed we saw was horrendous. It was dirty/ stained with some white colored flaky stuff (I'd hate to imagine what it was with real women of the night walking the sidewalk outside the place) The white bed covers on two of the beds were also stained: one with a red (ketchup like) substance, the second was brown (coffe like) stain. We immediately notified the front desk and they sent housekeeping to the room. She proceeded to wipe off the white flaky stuff off the swede instead of replacing it with a clean one.

Ok for the money

Older hotel that needs updating. Placed a security deposit on bill without telling me. Took over a week to have it removed.
